Pros: Inline Mic/Controls for Apple Devices, Powerful Sub-Bass, Natural/Balanced Representation, Build Quality is Excellent, Price/Performance Ratio

Cons: No Detachable Cable, slight grain in the treble, Loop doesn't fit in everybodies ears, Bass is loose and kind of muddies up the sound

The best-sounding of all the headphones B&W made IMO. The C5 is the lovechild of the P5 and P7 full-sized headphones. It shares the smooth/creamy sound of the P5's and some of the speed and treble-detail of the P7's. It is also less sibilant than the P7's, having a more natural and less fatiguing representation that is more pleasant to the ears. Moreover, it is less thicker in sound than the P5's; and as a result, it has less of the congested/dark representation the P5's possess. Lastly, I noticed the C5's have considerably more sub-bass than both the P7's and P5's which make listening to tracks with a lot of sub-bass and movies sound powerful with alot of rumble. These are not going to blow your mind, but they are very decent for the price. I approve these.
